Rules of Engagement - DCC Quick Naval Combat Rules


We here at 2 Old Guys Games started by and continue to publish nautical adventures (Sinking the Stercorarius, Behold! The Aethernauts Rise!). To that end, we have decided that a set of naval combat rules for DCC are in order. These have shown up in bits and pieces of other adventures that are in progress or published by us. It made sense that we have a published set of rules all in one place for quick reference. Having played some great naval combat tabletop games like Sails of Glory, it was imperative that these rules not bog down the feel of DCC nor create such a complex construct that it subsumes the role-playing game that they’re inside of. To that end, we give you Rules of Engagement, Quick Naval Combat Rules for DCC.

What's inside?

  • A quick 6-page ruleset including cannon combat and boarding.
  • Cannon reloading and firing mechanics
  • Action for all PCs during combat (not just pilots and gunners)
  • Handy dandy reference cards for Combat Action Options
  • INTERACTIVE Cannon Reload and Cannon Hit Trackers
  • Ship Orientation Handout - for determining positions and bonuses.
  • Optional Rules - including Wind, Detailed Piloting, Magic in Naval Combat
  • Ship tokens with and without cannons firing.
  • An Open water map.

All that is jam-packed into an unsinkable package ready to set sail and blow holes in your enemy's hulls!

In the immortal words of Ron Burgundy....

This is a great supplement if you are running a nautical game. Naval combat rules are usually clunky and not fun. I have traditionally just handled them in a narrative fashion in my game, but have always felt like I was missing out on an opportunity. [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
